You use this recipe anywhere you'd use Bisquick or some other baking mix.
Now, to make this a "legal" review - this recipe is a great money saver. Buying premade baking mixes is expensive if you use them frequently. Also -we much rather know EXACTLY what goes into the foods we serve our families!

I have a copy of the 1966 Missouri Mix 20 page booklet of recipes you can make from this mix. The BEST and easiest coffee cake, Dumplings, Biscuits, Muffins, Griddle Cakes, & Waffles, Fried Pies, Swirls, Cakes, Cookies & the Other Good Things section. I think I wrote to a University of Missouri address to get this booklet - I'm actually going to make the Coffee Cake this Sunday and go see a neighbor up the street that lost her husband recently. We will have some 'girl' time and great coffee cake. I highly recommend this recipe!

This is a great recipe. I've used it for years. It's a lot lower in sodium than the name brand biscuit mixes and you can substitute whole wheat flour (but be sure to refrigerate the mix if you use whole wheat). You can Google "Missouri Mix" and find lots of great recipes.

Are there any instructions as to what to do with the mix in order to make it into something to eat? Is this a biscuit mix?
[CDKitchen Note: use it in place of bisquick in recipes]
